The MOD FILMS Network ( is a web platform supporting stories whether they be amateur or professional. We are not about re-inventing the wheel or building a walled garden. The system is in ALPHA (i.e. we're building it out in the open) but our aim is to provide a useful node on the Internet for storytellers. This includes acting as a bridge to existing resources.
